In the competitive world of homebuilding, reaching the 40th Anniversary is no easy task! Recently, on a blustery day in Charlotte, NC we sat down with our founders, let the cameras roll and listened to them talk - in their own words about the humble beginnings of Eastwood Homes!
For a number of years, our founder, Joe Stewart was working as a young schoolteacher in Gaston County, NC when he decided to try homebuilding. The company started on a small scale, beginning with 4 homes. Today, we’ve built over 16,000 homes for our customers. Now, Joe and his son, Clark Stewart work shoulder to shoulder to carry on the legacy of Eastwood Homes.
From the very beginning, Joe was very careful to instill a sense of responsibility and caring into the company culture - core values that continue to guide us as Eastwood Homes has grown and expanded into more markets in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. It’s been a fun forty years since 1977, and we’re excited about the possibilities that lie ahead in the next 40!
